A message from Boards and Councils Department Executive Director Regina Haney, Ed.D.:
“This month the boards and councils department is focusing on the topic of finances, especially as it relates to good governance. On our newsfeed, we are featuring articles that discuss new financial models for schools, tips on better financial management, and a preview of a new report from the Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities (FADICA) on new models of governance.
In addition to these articles, we have Using Financial Statements (available here), our current hot item on finances for board and administrators, as well as our new Thumbnail, The Boards Role in Fundraising and Advocacy (available here). Both are very useful tools to prepare your board for dealing with all things financial.
Finally, if you have not yet registered for NCEA 2015, we highly suggest you take the time to do so. There are many great sessions covering finances, marketing, advancement/development, and governance this year. You can register here.
We hope that these tools mentioned in this newsletter will better prepare your board for the task of managing finances and governing well to ensure the operational vitality of our school(s).”
